40 Days of Outdoor Memories

Thanks A Lot, COVID 19!

 

Back in early April, when it became clear we would be hunkering indoors for at least the next month, barely getting out, and certainly not doing any traveling, I started posting on my social media accounts pictures of some wonderful vistas I took in the past in the great outdoors.  I called the postings “Daily Outdoor Memory Escape”, a name I now find a bit unwieldy but I guess I’m stuck with it.  And it looks very much like I’ll continue posting these for some time still, since we’ll be hunkering down in NYC a lot longer than we first assumed back in early April.

So here are the first 40 Outdoor Memory Pics, with links to the original blog posts they hail from, and which include a lot more pretty outdoor pics like them:
